A shark researcher has offered a new theory about what might be behind some of the world’s famous lake monsters.
Bruce Wright, a senior scientist at the Aleutian Pribilof Island Association, wrote an article for the Alaska Dispatch newspaper that proposed an interesting idea: “For years, legendary tales from Scotland and Western Alaska described large animals or monsters thought to live in Loch Ness and Lake Iliamna. But evidence has been mounting that the Loch Ness and Lake Iliamna monsters may, in fact, be sleeper sharks.”
Wright suggests that the sharks, which can reach 20 feet long and weigh over four tons, might migrate through rivers and into lakes and be mistaken for monsters.
